The OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation

We see a bright future. A world where everyone can See More and Be More.

What is the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation?

The OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation is a family of charitable programmes, dedicated to improving the vision of people in need through outreach, research and education. Working with the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation, we hope to improve people's vision, by making eye tests and treatments more accessible by partnering with other brands. 

Our approach

More than 314 million adults and children across the world suffer from poor vision because they don't have access to eye tests or glasses. Working with OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation, our employees volunteer to help doctors and other partners make eye care more accessible at OneSight Global Eye Care Clinics. 

Our latest mission

In July 2023, six of our colleagues Hasnain, Judith, Shweta, Diana, Camilla and Saloni, returned from a life-changing week in Maldova. Our team of 6, alongside other OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation volunteers, ran free temporary vision clinics in Chişinău and Ungheni for Moldovans and Ukrainian refugees.
